and representative nancy pelosi have been excluded from talks leaving it to boehner and obama to make a deal. though boehner spokesman michael steele tells us this morning if we're going to solve this problem every congressional leader and more importantly the white house have all important roles to play. the fact is we've heard this same thing. and that is that pelosi and the senate leaders are not in the room at first. they'll be brought in when boehner and the white house are close. mann while, back to the debt ceiling. the new republicans' main point of leverage n. a rare misstep, mcconnell may have taken some of that leverage away in a move that ended with mcconnell filibustering himself. the president doesn't have enough democratic support, mcconnell moved to vote to permanently give the president the rate to approve the debt ceiling. reid shocked mcconnell by calling the idea of having that vote a positive development. forcing him to reject a vote he had called for himself. >> is there objection? >> reserving the right to object, matters of this controversy -- what we're talking about here is

? >> reporter: a very interesting moment when the former democratic house speaker nancy pelosi had blunt advice for the current republican house speaker in terms of learning how to get his caucus together to find a deal that can actually pass congress and that the president will sign and those blunt words were, quote, figure it out. sources of both parties say a tuesday evening phone call between the president and speaker boehner did not go well. >> well, the president and i had a deliberate call yesterday and we spoke honestly and openly about the differences that we face. >> cnn has learned at least part of the reason why. tuesday's gop counteroffer included a renewed explicit call for a, quote, permanent extension of bush era tack cuts for the top 2% of americans. according to a democratic source familiar with the language. the democratic source argued that proposing to permanently extend tax cuts for the wealthy that the president calls a nonstarter shows that republicans are either, quote, unwilling or unable to make an offer they can pass and the president will sign. >> those magic beans

congress. he submitted his cap and trade proposal when the democrats controlled the house and senate. nancy pelosi got passed in the house. now this group is going to the epa in saying that you just do it, crack down on these admissions yourself. the supreme court has said that you have this power. go for it. the eta said no, for now. reporter: the epa probably wishes that the group had not said so out loud. it is probably not helpful to have outside. the original proposals that the epa talked about earlier in the president's first term related to really tough standards that would essentially make it an economic impossibility to use coal, which still is the preponderance of america's electrical generation power. epa backed off of that. the epa is going to crack down very hard in months to come with the president having been reelected. environmentalists like that because it is a means to a cap-and-trade or means to a carbon cap. without having to go through congress were without having to get ratification of the u.n. treaty. megyn: it is another system. it looks kind of like cap-and-trade fr

but certainly doesn't mean they will get a deal. interesting all the other leaders, nancy pelosi, harry reid, mitch mcconnell, they're all out. in the end it will be the president and the leader of house republicans speaker boehner and they will have it make a deal both sides can live with. martha: for all intents and purposes john boehner continues to say that he will not raise taxes on that top 2%. that he wants that revenue to come in the form of changing deductions and loopholes. the president says exactly the opposite. so one side is going to have to give. any bet which side it is likely it be? >> on that issue i think the republicans are going to have to give. it was a key issue in the election. and remember, it's unsustainable i think politically for boehner, forget the economics of this. i know people say that should be the only issue here. let's talk about the politics of it. it is unsustainable for boehner and the republicans to be in a position where they are blocking a tax cut for 98% of the americans because they want it protect tax rates of the top 2%. that may be right or wron

leader nancy pelosi and let the republican civil war begin. it doesn't even matter whether boehner gets deposed as speaker. either way, the republican house would be neutered, giving obama a free hand to dominate washington and fashion the entitlement state of his liking. what should republicans do? stop giving stuff away. if obama remains intransigent, let him be the one to take us over the cliff, and then let the new house, which is sworn in weeks before the president, immediately introduce and pass a full across-the-board restoration of the george w. bush tax cuts. >> so i don't think that's inconsistent with anything that i just said. i agree with him 100%. what have i been saying for a week? do not cave. compromise. do not cave. if the president doesn't want to meet us halfway on massive entitlement cuts, on reforming those systems to save medicare and medicaid, social security, cutting defense, reforming the taxes, then do not meet -- if he doesn't want to meet halfway, but i've got to tell you, i am heartened with what i saw in the president's tone yesterday. i loved hearing him

. in addition, the democratic caucus, under the leadership of nancy pelosi, went over that bill line by line three times. i remember it well. but let me get to the business at hand because, mr. speaker, i haven't seen an honest day's work in congress here in quite a while. earlier this year, a broadcastering company said it reported $320,000 a week to run the house of representatives, but the majority spent the money on shuttling us back and forth to washington and ask us to sit here and twiddle our thumbs. no more. it's time to get down to brass tax and give the american people a return on their multimillion dollar investment. we start here and now by passing the middle class tax cut. all we have to do is take up a senate bill. it's right there. noigs that we ought to really take up the violence against women act from the senate. not the house bill. the house bill did not include numbers of women in america under this act, native american women, gay women, immigrant women and we couldn't tolerate that. let's take the senate bill and pass it that bill has reduced domestic violence 67%. we ne

after speaker boehner's news conference, house majority leader nancy pelosi spoke with reporters. she caught on the white house to vote on legislation to extend tax cuts for people making under $250,000 per year. >> just barely morning. good morning. three received the news that the economy has added 146,000 jobs last month. the unemployment rate fell to 7.7%. we marked the 33rd consecutive month of private-sector job growth. our economy is moving forward. it could be growing faster. the republican leadership should have taken up and passed some of president obama's java job initiatives and middle income tax cuts. having held of those initiatives, speaker boehner said, democrats are for walking the economy to the fiscal cliff, yet this is the same leadership that have the house in session barely a day this week. we have had the election. the president was clear in the campaign that he was advocating for the middle-income tax cuts, a tax cut which gives 100% of taxpayers a tax break, but it also asks the upper 2% pay their fair share. since the election, we have had time to come up wit
